Cody Rego secures top-ten finish in prestigious Maclay Championship finals
Bermudian equestrian Cody Rego enjoyed an impressive outing at the prestigious ASPCA Maclay Championship Finals, securing a top-ten finish at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The ASPCA Maclay Championship is one of the most prestigious competitions for Junior riders in the United States. Hundreds of juniors compete in numerous regional competitions, with the goal of qualifying and competing in the annual competition.
The Finals are held annually during the National Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington and is considered to be one of the most competitive classes in the show.
As one of 178 skilled riders to qualify, 16-year-old Rego, riding Tanzanite De Semilly, secured a highly commendable ninth place.
“The BEF is delighted to share Cody’s outstanding achievement and together with our equestrian community extends its heartfelt congratulations to Cody on such a commendable accomplishment,” said the Bermuda Equestrian Federation in a statement.
It was only earlier this year that Rego was invited to join the acclaimed equestrian facility, North Run, as a working student. Based out of Vermont and Florida, North Run is owned and managed by well-known and respected equestrian trainer Miss Clark and her husband, John Breenan.
